Jamie Shillcock

Jamie Shillcock v Saracens (Gallagher Premiership Rugby)

The greatness of some tries sneaks up on you slowly, a dawning realisation you're witnessing a quality score; others take their quality and hit you with it at full force.

Solomone Kata makes a nice inital linebreak to get Tigers on the front foot but this try is all Shillcock.

The fly-half lines up as normal but hits the line at pace and hits a huge hand off to knock back opposite number Owen Farrell, with Shillcock then putting on the afterburners to crash through a covering Ivan van Zyle to score in the corner.

Freddie Steward

Freddie Steward v Harlequins (Gallagher Premiership Rugby)

A first Leicester Tigers appearance after returning from the World Cup, Steward announced his return with a brace of quality scores in this match.

It's Steward's second try we're focused on here, as the fullback/wing adds the finishing touches to an intricately built move structured around gainline dominance.

Starting with a typically hellacious Jasper Wiese midfield carry, Ben Youngs pulls the strings as first the Springbok, then Steward crash over the gainline. The ball flies through soft hands to the left side as Bassett, the left wing, makes more metres. Van Wyk takes a settling carry into midfield before Liebenberg smashes through a hole and suddenly Tigers are 15m out as the backs line up wide on the right.

From there it's executed to perfection, out the back of the hands to Mike Brown on an arcing line who puts over Steward for a simple finish in the corner.

Ollie Hassell-Collins

Ollie Hassell-Collins v Gloucester Rugby (Gallagher Premiership Rugby)

Ollie Hassell-Collins' second try of the game against the Cherry & Whites, this one put the game the bed.

A true team try this one originates from a scrum and it's the hard, relentless graft of the pack that sets the platform for the score in the first place.

First Liebenberg secures the ball then there's tough carries in the loose from Wiese, Heyes, Chessum, Cronin until they finally pull the trigger.

Youngs flings the ball out the back to Kelly, who goes out the back himself to a rampaging Steward who flings the ball wide to O11ie Hassell-Collins who has the gas to touch down in space.
